Up! Practical Sales Talks

November 15, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

Join us for Up!  A series of practical and candid sales talks by experts in the trenches.  We have a great selection of experts who are working their craft in the field of sales and will be sharing their personal stories about their success and tactics they use to be the best in their field.

All businesses want more revenues and one of the best ways to get that is through more sales.  There are 9 workshops with guest presenters sharing their knowledge and helping you realize the same success!

Growing users for a subscription based business is tough. Developing a hook, brand values, interest in your product, and getting people to opt into your message is one of the most critical components to it’s success, and email marketing is at it’s core. In this session you will hear from serial entrepreneur Alex Brown, co-founder of Beard Club (formerly Dollar Beard Club) on how they built their brand through viral videos, have grown their mailing list to over 500,000, leveraged email and social (over 250 million video views across their channels) to convert over 150,000 subscribers and drove $13M in revenue within their first year. He’ll walk through the challenges, the successes and the failures in their marketing experiments with Beard Club and will share his invaluable learnings in generating massive amounts of sales in a short timeline leveraging a well build email list. As a bonus, Alex will share his experience with a second startup, Coolbox that raised 500% of its target on Indiegogo, was successfully funded on Shark Tank with Kevin Harrington, and going through the exit of that business. If you want to learn the hard lessons from an entrepreneur that has been there, done that, and not finished yet, then this is the session you must attend.
